… forty-three to go.
I finished the Just Enough Ruffles scarf. It didn’t take long at all, maybe four days of not-all-that-dedicated knitting.
I should have taken pre-blocking photos, because this got a LOT longer when I took it out of its little post-knitting bath in the sink.
This was quite an enjoyable knit. I love scarves this shape, and I LOVE Malabrigo. The pattern was simple and quick. One thing, though: if you’re thinking about knitting it, I’d urge you to consider that the final instruction is “Bind off 600 stitches purlwise.” That is a LOT of binding off purlwise. Totally doable, but also totally tedious. Truly, it was a test of will. Me versus The Six Hundred.
VICTORY IS MINE!!!
On a totally unrelated note–or maybe only partly unrelated, since it’s a well-documented fact that where you find knitters, you often find cats as well–the cat likes to sleep on the bed during the day. Specifically, in the spot where Mister Principessa’s head goes, because it’s window adjacent. The Mister got sick of having to whip out the lint roller every night before bed, so he sacrificed his old afghan to give the cat a place to sleep and shed that wasn’t directly on the bedspread. Knowing how cats are, you can guess how well that worked.
I DARE you to tell me this isn’t out of sheer spite. Come on. DARE you.
